Boiler Testing

 Boiler Testing

Now that life is slowly returning to normal, and we can all start sailing again with fewer restrictions, do not forget that if you want to put a steamer on the lake, it must have a boiler certificate for a safety test within the last 12 months. For most of us, this will mean performing a new steam test, as little or no testing has been possible in the last year.

Our boiler tester, John Senior, has started retesting so contact him if you wish to arrange a test. He can be contacted by Email [] or by phone [0161 427 2968].

The photo below, courtesy of Bob Abell, shows John performing a Covid safe outdoor test for David Lee on the landing stage earlier this week.

Back to Normal [ish] !

 On the Lake - Tuesday 30 March

Following the latest relaxation of Government Covid restrictions on Monday, the sailing boys have wasted no time in getting back to normal operation - whilst still observing all the rules.

Here they are setting up for a long awaited day's racing, in glorious sunshine.

Eric Blackburn

 Eric Blackburn

We have just heard that another long standing member of the club, Eric Blackburn, died last Wednesday.

We understand that the cause was heart failure, and that he was in Stepping Hill Hospital at the time of his death.

At present, we have no further information.

Our condolences and sympathy go to his family.
